Event | GOETHE-INSTITUT: Creators@Kamogawa

It is half-time for me at the marvelous Goethe-Institut Villa Kamogawa Residency Programme where I was privileged to have the trust and support of the Goethe-Institut staff and Japanese culture and art world professionals. Where I was able to work on an otherwise impossible project; where I stood in awe of the daunting landscapes, sceneries and sprawls of Japan.

Marking the midpoint of this endevour is Creators@Kamogawa on June 29 2019, an interdisciplinary event organized by the Goethe-Institut Villa Kamogawa, in which the resident artists engage in a conversational format on stage about themes and topics influencing their work with Japanese experts from other disciplines.

Residency | The Villa Kamogawa Residency (May 9 – Aug 6 2019)

I am humbled and delighted to announce that I have been selected for Group 2 of the prestigious GOETHE-INSTITUT VILLA KAMOGAWA Residency Programme in Kyoto, Japan from May 9 – August 6 2019.

I am very grateful for the Goethe-Institut to select my project and guide my research for a multi-part video installation about radical tendencies in buddhist doctrine and its influence on Japanese society.

Scholarship | The American Scholarship (Jul-Dec 2018)

For all of you I unfortunately haven’t been able to get in touch with personally:

After a thorough application process I have been granted the USA-SCHOLARSHIP by the Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences and the Arts. I am scheduled to board my plane this Sunday, July 1st 2018, and to spend the next six months in the United States of America, most of this time in the glistening sprawl of Los Angeles.

I am very grateful for this wonderful opportunity to pursue a project I dreamed about realizing ever since I became an artist and wish you well for the remainder of the year before we meet again.
